SERMON 121

ومن كلام له (عليه السلام)

قاله للخوارج، وقد خرج إلى معسكرهم وهم مقيمون على إنكار الحكومة، فقال(عليه السلام):

أَكُلُّكُمْ شَهِدَ مَعَنَا صِفِّينَ؟

فَقَالُوا: مِنَّا مَنْ شَهِدَ وَمِنَّا مَنْ لَمْ يَشْهَدْ.

قَالَ: فَامْتَازُوا فِرْقَتَيْنِ، فَلْيَكُنْ مَنْ شَهِدَ صِفِّينَ فِرْقَةً، وَمَنْ لَمْ يَشْهَدْهَا فَرْقَةً، حَتَّى أُكَلِّمَ كُـلاًّ مِنْكُمْ بِكَلاَمِهِ.

وَنَادَى النَّاسَ، فَقَالَ: أَمْسِكُوا عَنِ الْكَلاَمِ، وَأَنْصِتُوا لِقَوْلِي، وَأَقْبِلُوا بِأَفْئِدَتِكُمْ إِلَيَّ، فَمَنْ نَشَدْنَاهُ شَهَادَةً فَلْيَقُلْ بِعِلْمِهِ فِيهَا.

ثُمَّ كَلَّمَهُمْ(عليه السلام) بِكَلاَم طَوِيل، مِنْ جُمْلَتِهِ أَنْ قَالَ:

أَلَمْ تَقُولُوا عِنْدَ رَفْعِهِمُ الْمَصَاحِفَ ـ حِيلَةً وَغِيلَةً وَمَكْراً وَخَدِيعَةً ـ: إِخْوانُنَا وَأَهْلُ دَعْوَتِنَا، اسْتَقَالُونَا وَاسْتَرَاحُوا إِلى كِتَابِ اللهِ سُبْحَانَهُ، فَالرَّأْيُ الْقَبُولُ مِنْهُمْ وَالتَّنْفِيسُ عَنْهُمْ؟

فَقُلْتُ لَكُمْ: هذَا أَمْرٌ ظَاهِرُهُ إِيمَانٌ، وَبَاطِنُهُ عُدْوَانٌ، وَأَوَّلُهُ رَحْمَةٌ، وَآخِرُهُ نَدَامَةٌ، فَأَقِيمُوا عَلى شَأْنِكُمْ، وَالْزمُوا طَرِيقَتَكُمْ، وَعَضُّوا عَلَى الْجِهَادِ بِنَوَاجِذِكُمْ، وَلاَ تَلْتَفِتُوا إِلى نَاعِق نَعَقَ: إِنْ أُجِيبَ أَضَلَّ، وَإِنْ تُرِكَ ذَلَّ.

[وَقَدْ كَانَتْ هذِهِ الْفَعْلَةُ، وَقَدْ رَأَيْتُكُمْ أَعْطَيْتُمُوهَا، وَاللهِ لَئِنْ أَبَيْتُهَا مَا وَجَبَتْ عَلَيَّ فَرِيضَتُهَا وَلاَ حَمَّلَنِي اللهُ ذَنْبَهَا، وَوَاللهِ إِنْ جِئْتُهَا إِنِّي لَلْمُحِقُّ الَّذِي يُتَّبَعُ، وَإِنَّ الْكِتَابَ لَمَعِي، مَا فَارَقْتُهُ مُذْ صَحِبْتُهُ].

فَلَقَدْ كُنَّا مَعَ رَسُولِ اللهِ(صلى الله عليه وآله)، وَإِنَّ الْقَتْلَ لَيَدُورُ بَيْنَ الاْباءِ وَالاَْبْنَاءِ وِالاِْخوَانِ وَالْقَرَابَاتِ، فَمَا نَزْدَادُ عَلَى كُلِّ مُصِيبَة وَشِدَّة إِلاَّ إِيمَاناً، وَمُضِيّاً عَلَى الْحَقِّ، وَتَسْلِيماً لِلاَْمْرِ، وَصَبْراً عَلَى مَضَضِ الْجِرَاحِ.

وَلكِنَّا إِنَّمَا أَصْبَحْنَا نُقَاتِلُ إِخْوَانَنَا فِي الاِْسْلاَمِ عَلَى مَا دَخَلَ فِيهِ مِنَ الزَّيْغِ وَالاعْوِجَاجِ، وَالشُّبْهَةِ وَالتَّأْوِيلِ، فَإِذَا طَمِعْنَا فِي خَصْلَة  يَلُمُّ اللهُ بِهَا شَعَثَنَا ، وَنَتَدَانَى بِهَا  إِلَى الْبَقِيَّةِ فِيَما بَيْنَنَا، رَغِبْنَا فِيهَا، وَأَمْسَكْنَا عَمَّا سِوَاهَا.

 
SERMON 121
When the Kharijites persisted in their rejecting the Arbitration, Amir al-mu’minin went to their camp and addressed them thus: 

Were all of you (1) with us in Siffin? They replied that some of them were but some of them were not. Amir al-mu’minin said: 

Then you divide yourselves into two groups. One of those who were in Siffin and other of those who were not present there, so that I may address each as I see suitable. Then he shouted to the people: 

Stop talking and keep quiet to listen to what I say. Turn your hearts to me. Whomever we ask for evidence, he should give it according to his knowledge about it.
Then he had a long conversation with them during which he said: 

When they had raised the Qur’an by way of deceit, craft, artifice and cheat, did you not say “They are our brothers and our comrades in accepting Islam. 

They want us to cease fighting, and ask for protection through the Book of Allah, the Glorified. Our opinion is to agree with them and to end their troubles.” Then I said to you, “In this affair the outer side is Faith but the inner side is enmity. 

Its beginning is pity and the end is repentance. Consequently you should stick to your position, and remain steadfast on your path. You should press your teeth (to put all your might) in jihad and should not pay heed to the shouts of the shouter (2). If he is answered he would mislead, but if he is left (unanswered) he would be disgraced.” 

But when this thing (Arbitration) was done I found that you agreed to it. By Allah, if I had refused it, it would not have been obligatory on me. Nor would Allah have laid its sin on me. And by Allah, not that I have accepted it, I alone am the rightful person who should be followed, for certainly the Qur’an is with me. I never forsake it since I adopted its company. 

We have been with the Prophet in battles wherein those killed were fathers, sons, brothers and relations of one another. Nevertheless, every trouble and hardship just increased us in our belief, in our treading on the right path, in submission to (divine) command and in endurance of the pain of wounds. 

We now had to fight our brethren in Islam because of entry into Islam of misguidance, crookedness, doubts and (wrong) interpretation. However, if we find any way by which Allah may collect us together in our disorder and by which we may come near each other in whatever common remains between us we would accept it and would give up everything else.
(1). Ibn Abi’l-Hadid writes that this sermon comprises three parts which do not fit together, because as-Sayyid ar-Radi selected some parts of Amir al-mu’minin’s sermons and did not record other parts as a result of which the continuity of utterance was not maintained.
 

Thus, one part ends at “if he is left unanswered he would be disgraced”, the other at “and endurance at the pain of wound” and the third runs till the end of the sermon. (2). This reference is to Mu`awiyah or `Amr ibn al-`As.

Bismillah Hir Rehma Nir Raheem ka Raaz

Bismillah Hir Rehma Nir Raheem ka Raaz

wp-15932647241936546826618248416687.jpg

Bismillah Hir Rehma Nir Raheem ka matlab hai ke “Allah ke Naam se Shuru Jo Nihayat Meharban Hamesha Rahem farmane Wala Hai.” Jab pehle Allah Ta’ala ka Naam hai to Arabi me fir “Allah” se pehle BA aur ISM kyu hai? Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri apni kitab Tafsir e Minhaj ul Quran Surah Fatiha part 1 page 79 se 83 tak me ISM ke Raaz ko detail me explain kiya ke ISM ka matlab “Alamat” hai, lekin Allah Ta’ala ki Alamat ko paana kisike bus me hai he nahi, hamari waha tak rasayi he nahi na aqal pahunch sakti hai, to pata kaha se chale, to ek Aisi Alamat ki Zarurat thi Jise Rabb-e-Kainat ki Khabar bhi ho aur Wo dusro ko bhi Khabar de. Jo Apni Zaat ke Mazhar me bhi Kaamil ho aur Us Zaat-e-Mutlaq ke Izhar keliye bhi Kamil ho. To Aisi Kamil Hasti Jo ISM ke Khawaas ki Sahih Taur par Hamil bhi ho, Wo Sirf Zaat-e-Muhammadi SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam he Hai! yaani Aaqa SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam ki Taraf Ishara! Lekin ISM ke pehle aur ek huruf hai BA. BA se agar uska nuqta nikal diya jaaye to baa ki identity khatam hojati hai aur uska kuch matlab nahi rehta. To BA ke Nuqte me BA ki identity hai. aur fir sabko pata hai Sayyeduna Maula Ali Sher e Khuda KarramAllahu Wajahahul Kareem ne farmaya: Bismillah Shareef ke BA ka Nuqta Mai Hun! Aur Aaqa SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam ne farmaya jisko Meri Bargah me aana hai usey Ali ke waaste se he aane ki ijazat hai warna nahi! aur fir shuru se aakhir tak Quran Gawah hai ke Allah ki Bargah tak rasayi bhi sirf o sirf Aaqa SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam ke Waaste se he milti hai! To Bismillah Hir Rehma Nir Raheem ka Matlab aisa hua, “Pehle Ali Ali kar fir Huzoor ka Waseela de, tab jaake Allah ko paayega Jo Nihayat Meharban Hamesha Rahem Farmane Wala hai!”!
